The University of Maryland Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department has announced that M.S. student Kenneth Ho has been selected as a 2007 Texas Instruments (TI) Scholar. Ho, an advisee of Associate Professor Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS), will join fellow TI Scholar Jerker Taudien, an advisee of ECE Professor Steven Tretter, as the second ECE graduate student currently participating in the program. Texas Instruments Senior Fellow William Witowsky, ECE Chair Dr. Patrick O'Shea, Dr. Tretter, Dr. Wu, Ho, and Taudien were on hand for a TI Scholar certificate presentation ceremony at the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building on December 4 (see photo above).

The TI Scholar program was made possible by a gift from the Texas Instruments branch located in Germantown, Maryland through their Industrial Affiliate partnership with the ECE Department. The program supports talented graduate students in electrical and computer engineering with a tuition grant, stipend, and benefits.

TI Scholars, selected among students with an interest and academic background in communications and signal processing, work on selected research topics during the academic year and throughout the summer.
